What is your most precious visible possession on earth? It's not your
car. You may acquire plenty. It's not your house. You may have a few.
It's not even your nearest or so-called dearest. Though you may deceive
yourself in to thinking the contrary, it's your body; for. you'll never
in this life have another. Yes, and without it you could not even know
of a so- called nearest or dearest! Yet we are living in a society in
which only the best petrol and oil are probably put in to one's car;
while nothing but junk food is put in to one’s body. Yes, the body,
which the Bible refers to as no less than the very temple of God.
‘Whoever defiles it’ - says the Bible – ‘him shall God destroy’. Yet the
masses are defiling it hourly by their irresponsible life styles.
Indeed, the following is a quote from animal activist Judi Hewitt which
appeared last month in a leading North Wales newspaper:
‘I recently did a one-woman protest outside the Flintshire &
Denbighshire show. It took a lot of courage to stand at the side of the
road and display my placard for all to see, yet not a single newspaper
bothered to use it. Instead they pictured Dickson Wright and Johnny
Scott signing copies of their latest country pursuits and game cookbook.
Someone really should tell Scott and Dickson-Wright that the Second
World War is over, that there is no need to go about shooting animals
for the pot any more. Nor is there any any need for hare-coursing,
fox-hunting or deer-stalking
They spout on about shooting being all about conservation and land
management: Rubbish. It's all about ensuring there are enough animals to
kill for sport.
They spout on about shooting being necessary because otherwise pests
would get out of control: Rubbish! Natural processes achieve a balance
between predator and prey; lethal human intervention for sport Is both
cruel and unnecessary.
They claim shooting for sport and the right to bare arms in the
country side is a civil liberty: Rubbish! It is a danger to wildlife and
a nuisance to the general public, preventing peaceful enjoyment of our
I am very pleased to say that the only thing I have in common with
Dickson-Wright is my age, 57.1 am a very healthy lifelong vegan, eating
lots of fresh fruit and veg. Dickson-Wright and Johnny Scott, (not
unlike the Adams family on TV) enjoy a dish of offal or testicles, and
it shows! After 50, we all get the face we deserve!
Yours for the animals,
